After experiencing a frightening night, triggering memories of past a molesting, I called the RTS hotline and was able to share my immediate feelings, not slip into a deep depression, and in general got the help I needed. I was put back onto my healing path. I thank everyone that associates with this wonderful organization!

This organization exploits its employees, provides very few services very inefficiently and is, in and of itself fairly, abusive and disrespectful. I highly do NOT recommend Rape Trauma Services.
